Twitter Mentions As Comments

Twitter Mentions as Comments scours Twitter for people talking about your site & silently inserts their Tweets alongside your existing comments.

Twitter Mentions as Comments does exactly what it promises to do - scours Twitter for people talking about your blog posts and silently inserts their Tweets alongside your existing comments. The plugin leverages the power of WordPress's built-in commenting system - notification, comment moderation, author white/black listing - making Twitter an extension of your blog.


  • Searches for Tweets linking to your blog posts, regardless of the URL shortener used (using Twitter's Search API)
  • Pushes Tweets into WordPress's existing comment workflow - notifications, comment moderation, and author whitelists/blacklists work just like any other comment
  • Fetches user's real name and profile picture and links directly to the original Tweet
  • Checks automatically - no need to do a thing
  • Option to automatically exclude ReTweets
  • Option to store tweets as trackbacks/pingbacks
  • Option to specify which posts to check (e.g., 10 most recent posts, all posts, front page only)
  • Smart Caching of Tweets and user data - retrieves only what it needs to save on API calls and server load

Planned Features

  • Dynamic resizing of Twitter profile images to fit WordPress theme
  • Prioritization of newer posts
  • Oauth Authentication to raise API limit (currently unlimited Tweets, but limited to 150 new comment authors per hour)
  • Smarter API throttling

You can see it in action on the WP Resume Plugin page.
